Anyone heard (in person) Meisterschaft GT2 w/aftermarket front & x-pipes?

Front & x-pipes as in not talking about the LX pipes (only gets rid of secondary cats & resonators) Eisenhaus sells, I'm talking about no cats & resonators like the one's made by RPi & Fabspeed. I know, I know it's gonna be effing loud...I just don't know how loud since I've only heard da regular GT (mufflers only) in person & still thought it was too quiet though it sound great! If you've heard this combo in person then can you describe how loud it was & which straight pipes they were? Looking for a loud F1 high-pitch clean sound, not just loud & obnoxious only. Thx!

- Jimmy

PS: FWIW, I thought the Eisen. race was way too quiet in person.

Ya, saw that vid. Sounds pretty good w/x-pipe but don't like the look of the muffler.

Man I hate to say it but that doesn't sound too good. Take a classy car like the M3 and why would you want to make it sound like its rattling? A nice clean aggressive sound is all the M needs IMO.

If you want racecar loud, the full GT2 with SR pipes and LX midpipes will definitely do the trick.

Here is a video of this setup in action. Let me know if you have any questions regarding the system. We are an authorized dealer for Meisterschaft.

It's very difficult to describe the sound in words. I personally don't think it sounds obnoxious. I like louder exhaust systems and this would be my choice.

IMO the LX pipes are way overpriced so I'm getting the RPi pipes. I love the sound combined w/the LX pipe (only gets rid of secondary cats & resonators as u know)...but wondering how much louder the whole setup will be w/the RPi setup (gets rid of all 4 cats & resonators) instead.

The RPi x-pipe gives huge gains, and makes whatever muffler you have extremely loud. It made their axle-back raspy, so I'm not sure if it'll make other mufflers raspy as well.

Ya, I've read & seen dyno's about it giving huge gains & also about the rasp. I'm just trying to decide if it's going to be too loud w/the Meisterschaft GT2. Another local M3 owner (Nawaaz) is getting the full Gintani setup & we're joking about who's is going to be louder, LOL! I've gotta feeling mine will be. U can count on us doing a full video comparison in/out of the M3 as well as inside a 2-lane tunnel.
